Serial story, 'Wishing You Home,' available to KPA members

Posted September 6, 2012

The Kansas Newspaper Foundation has again teamed up with Harris Enterprises to underwrite part of the cost of an original 16-chapter serial story, “Wishing You Home.”

The series is available at no cost to all Kansas Press Association member newspapers for use during the 2012-13 school year.

This story was written exclusively for Kansas newspapers. Serial stories have been a favorite of newspaper readers for generations. They are a great way for you to increase your NIE, single copy and general circulation.

This story was written by the award-winning children’s book author Eunice Boeve, Phillipsburg, and was illustrated by Michelle Meade of Salina.

The story won third place in the Midwest Circulation Management Association’s contest for Newspaper in Education (NIE) promotion.

This 16-chapter, historical-fiction serial story follows the life of 10 year-old Bobby, who lives in a small Kansas town during World War II. Bobby’s father is overseas fighting in the war, as are many men in the community.
